'93Queen' Screening @ SNF Parkway Theatre

The SNF Parkway Theatre in Baltimore hosts a special screening of new Brooklyn, N.Y., documentary “93Queen.”

“93Queen” is set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, where EMS corps have long been the province of men. Though the neighborhood is home to the largest volunteer ambulance corps in the world known as Hatzolah, that organization has steadfastly banned women from its ranks.

“93Queen” follows Rachel Freier, a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the “boys club” in her Hasidic community by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in NYC.

Freier and an engaging cast of dogged Hasidic women are risking their reputations—and, literally, the futures of their children—by taking matters into their own hands to provide dignified emergency medical care to the Hasidic women and girls of Borough Park.

Following the film, Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School Director of Education Dr. Zipora Schorr will reflect upon the changing landscape for Orthodox Jewish women. Run time: 85 minutes.
